Florence Crittenton to receive $900K from Childcare Innovation Grant

INDEPENDENT RECORD

Florence Crittenton Family Services will receive more than $900,000 to help with the renovations of a child care facility on the first floor of its newly acquired Cooney campus, officials said Tuesday.

The Florence Crittenton Child Enrichment Center will serve children ages 0-5 from its residential programs and the community.

The money is from the Child Care Innovation and Infrastructure Grant, a partnership with the Early Childhood and Family Support Division of the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services and 31 child care providers across Montana. It will be used to develop and implement innovative community, area, region and/or business-based strategies which expand child care for Montana families, Crittenton officials said.

“This grant is not only a transformational funding source that will help us see our facility expansion dream into reality, but it is a huge nod to our early childhood leadership and staff, and the incredible work they do every day in providing high quality care and programming to the children in their care,” Executive Director Carrie Krepps stated in a news release.
